Paige Smith
This is a great book about manners and growing up. The examples are about how to clean up, ask politely, and share.
Margaret Burton
This is a great book to teach children about appropriate manners. It gives fun ways for children to learn how to say "please, thank you, and much more". The illustrations are colorful and the sentences are short to hold the children's attention. I would combine this book with a lesson on manners, and provide learning activities for the children to work together on the things we've learned.
Courtney Lawson
This book had good vocabulary and illustrations for young children. The one phrase was repeated often throughout the story so child could become involved in telling the story. This would be a good book to read when teaching a young child appropriate manners.

Juvenile Fiction book about all the common misbehavior traits of children and those they do to each other. This book is related to Animals, Apes and social issues. Can be used to read at beginning of school year for preschoolers.

Read this to your young child, or have them read it to you. A very sweet and powerful book about manners. Basically, it is using the idea of monkey see, monkey do, in it. I thought it was a great read for my 1st Grader.

Mama read this to me before bed tonight.
Maria Almaguer
I didn't like this story. Sure it does help kids with manners but it was just not entertaining to me. Maybe this is a one on one story?
Jasmine Olivia
Too wordy.
